this is about. first downs. there's always a >>> the daily dose of obama care failures and embarrassments keeps rolling on. yet president obama still holds another pep rally today for his ev ever faltering health care law. this time the pep rally had no pep. a new report says about a third of all the obama care enrollees may not be enrolled. that's the reported failure rate on the so-called back end information that is sent to insurance companies. in other words, thousands of the nation's fast food workers are set to strike tomorrow. they want a $15 minute wage but don't they know that would essentially kill theiras the move to automation moves ahead. which country is the most charitable? it's the good old usa and thanks to free market capitalism. i will explain all those stories and much more coming up on the kudlow report beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone, i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report". we're here live 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 p.m. pacific. it's getting harder and harder for grab to put a happy face on obama care. new problems keep popping up every day. maybe that
weighs in on the latest obama care developments. president clinton recently said president obama should keep his promise, let people keep their doctors and insurance plans. so what is his latest assessment of the affordable care act? juan carlos lopez of cnn espanol is just back from a one-on-one interview with clinton. how did it go? what did he say about obama care, juan carlos? >> wolf it, went very well. the president on his way to of brazil, clinton global initiative. we did speak about what he said about obama care. i guess this is obama care 2.0 launched today, this is what he said about his previous statement and been possible future problems within health reform. >> is it because you are setting the way for mrs. clinton to run, and second, are the problems with obama care limited to the website? >> the answer to the first question is no. first of all, i said nothing about this. not one word until the president himself spoke. and it was obvious to me listening to him that he wanted the american people to feel that he had kept his commitment and that they didn't understand that h
of its own weight, they're going to highlight obama care horror stories, keep on focusing on vulnerable democrat incumbents particularly in the senate who went out and repeated the president's promises about how if you had a plan you liked you could keep it period. but now we have to see if a lot of things fall into place for the white house are. they going to get 7 million people, the right mix of 7 million people, enough young people to sign up by march 31st, and can they turn around public opinion on this law? it's now more negative than it's ever been, like about 56 to 40% noi negative. they have to have a lot of things go right for them. >> yesterday we talked about the data going into the insurance companies that they they are reporting is garbled incomplete. the back end is the payment of the premium. you can't have the insurance unless you pate premium. there was testimony on capitol hill a couple of weeks ago that that was never set up through this system. so insurers will have to reach out to those individually. no matter it would be a big zero if they don't pain the premium.
preventative care for 105 million cares. free preventive care. obama care provides health services to americans including free immunizations for children. free cancer screenings. free mammograms. what is your plan that would allow these folk, 105 million americans, to keep those benefits? >> first of all, there is nothing for free. you've got to pay for it. more people will lose their insurance under obama care. the republican plan is we have a choice. more choices not less. obama care narrows your choices. for competition, selling insurance across state line and above all, we're for driving premiums now. under obama care, the premiums are even higher. yonlt see any way obama care can work. >> let me turn to another subject. loans. last march, you took to the senate floor for 13 hours to filibuster a nomination because of your opposition to the military use of drones to attack u.s. citizens. this week as i'm sure you know, the head, we're looking at a picture of the drone right there, of amazon, announced they have plans, maybe five years down the road, that loans would come, pick up a package.
. >> that's irrelevant. it doesn't match what obama care has said that you need as in the pool to keep a fiscally sustainable number. >> i think there is going to be a sustainable number and the other thing you need to keep in mind is that the 18 to 34, a going to be on their parents plan. up to age 26. and so, you're concentrated in a group of 26 to 34-year-olds and that i think is where you need to get them to purchase with their own money and that, i do think is a group that you're going to be able to get. let me just say one other thing. there are three reasons i think people in that age group are going to sign up. first, you have a penalty. now, everyone talks about $95, but the fact is, it's 1% of income, which for most people is going to be more than $95. second, you have subsidies for many of these people that is going to make the price look and be very low. if you're a 30-year-old in california, you can get a silver plan and you make about 150% of the poverty line, get a silver plan for $50 a month. third, given the preventive services and other things, that premium is somethi
's claim that you can keep your own doctor under obama care, when in fact, many insurance plans have only limited lists of doctors and hospitals to choose from. >> if you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. this is a matter of choice. we know in all sort of choices, you pay more for a wider range of choices or benefits. the issue isn't the selective networks. people keep saying, oh, the problem is you're going to have a selective network. >> well, if you lose your doctor or your hospital -- >> people are going to have a choice whether they want to pay a certain amount for a selective network or pay more for a broader network. >> also today, insurance brokers are complaining they're having trouble helping their clients sign up for obama care because of problems with information at the back end of that troubled enrollment process. >> issues, issues. still abound. thanks, steve. good to see you. >> jamie, it's a national day of prayer and reflection in south africa. for former president nelson mandela. people gathering outside mandela's house i
government made to those people and let them keep what they got. >> reporter: when he publicly urged obama last month to keep his promise about his health care law. for clinton, the issue hits close to home. >> i have a lot at stake here personally for the work i've done for health care and the work i tried to support. and hillary does, too. we've been working on this health care thing for 20 years. >> reporter: president obama will be speaking at a youth summit on the affordable care act. chris, as you know, young people are key to this. they're si their signing up, is going to offset, that's the plan anyway, older americans who are more costly to care for. >> absolutely. brianna keilar at the white house this morning. >>> another situation for you to watch this morning, a winter storm coming on strong, turning the country white. it's already dropped heavy snow on parts of the midwest and rockies. 30 inches fell on idaho tuesday. let's get to meteorologist indra petersons. watching this move across the country. here it comes, indra. >> unfortunately the snow will not be the worst thing we
. >> sounds a lot like -- i don't know -- capitalism. senator, president obama promised to not let detroit go bankrupt. he may have been talking about the auto industry or the city, but did the president lie? >> he's given a lot of promises. he promised we could keep our doctor if we liked them also. there have been a lot of things the president hasn't come through with. i think this is one of them and i think this is the difference between democrats and republicans. democrats are promising you something but not coming through. republicans are promising a real solution. this is also, we have had 50 years of trying government stimulus and it hasn't worked. now we're going to try a free market stimulus where the money gets in the hands of the businesses that can use it successfully to create jobs. >> let's turn the topic to race. let's be honest, senator, the republicans nor the democrats have done much to help african-americans get a job. five years of obama policies have led to high elevated unemployment in the black community and frankly the republicans are perceived as not caring about mino
-rained healthcare.gov website. >> a reminder of the top story we're following, president obama said the income gap between rich and poor americans keeps growing. during a major speech in washington the president said income inequality is jeopardizing middle class and he want to make sure that the economy works for everyone. ali velshi will be working on this one, at the top of the program, "real money." it's great to have you back. what's your reaction to the president's speech on equality, he also talked about the wealth gap as well. >> it's very serious. this is the most worrying thing i'll be talking about this as long as i can. go back to 1979, productivity is up more than 90%. we're just that much more productive with our cellphones and the way we do business, longer days. typical income fo for the amerin family is up 8%. ththe average ceo makes 273 tims the income of the average worker. and a family in the top 1%. a term we've come to know well, has a network that is 288 times hire, 288 times higher than a typical family. it doesn't matter about firstness. people should earn what they can ea
you could keech your -- and -- keep your -- and your health care plan. one of the key obama care architects is saying, sure, you can keep your -- if you can afford it. >> it is a simple yes or no question. >> did he say if you like your -- you can -- your doctor, you can keep your doctor. >> yes. can you do that. this is a matter of choice.
that president obama laid out if you like your healthcare then you can keep it. he has established it's not a fully accurate promise. will it be established that it's not an accurate promise and in the market? >> it was said that the affordable care act is not a website. but if that is the front door to a big piece of policy doesn't it have to work for people to have confidence for the rest of it? >> they're saying now at least the user inter face for the most part has been fixed. they point to 80%. 80% of people who go through the website can go through the entire process and get coverage. you're right to ask what is success. point of view of success from the administration has changed. they said 7. million by the first year is success. now because of some of the problems you're seeing they're see something success is how well is the risk pool distributed? do you have enough young people to offset the others to make sure that premiums are balanced. bringing in enough young people in the program will really define whether or not the market is stable in 2015 and 2017. >> even if that i
to rebrand obama care. the shift focusing from his broken promise. >> read my lips. no new taxes. >> if you liked your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor period. it's a punchline. this is definitely barack obama's read my lip s moment. >> let me get emily in here to defend whether or not you think it is that serious of a moment. whether we still remember that. >> look, i think today is a rebrand. today is a hit restart button on it. since the health care law started to go into effect. the website was not good but it is not the law. there are other pieces that have gone into effect like being able to get new coverage. young people being able to stay on their parent's coverage. >> yeah, but today republicans agreed on. those are not the things that we are hearing about that are problems with the law itself. but now the president is going to come forward during the month of december. 15 minutes from now we will see what that is about. have a great day. >> thank you. >> the white house seems to be running out of excused for the problems with the website. >> where is the accountability
obama's created, he's created 1.5 million job, 75% of those, part time. >> you keep saying he created those jobs. i keep saying his job creation started when he issued the stimulus -- >> the obama recovery -- >> the fact is, we're -- >> they even admit that. >> from the bush administration? >> what has he been able to accomplish while he's in office? >> saved us from a depression. >> they've actually had -- the government statistic, bear that out -- >> they kept us from a depression. >> you know where the real wealth gap is, it's in d.c. that wealth gap is so large, michael moore could waddle through it. >> interesting thing the administration can take credit for the stock market but they don't want to take the blame for the income inequality he espouses. how is that, bob? >> income inequality has been growing for 20 years in this country. >> that was eric's point -- >> no, what, it's been growing for a long time. it's not any one president's fault -- the fact of the matter is, yes, it's gotten -- >> hyperventilating -- >> -- do you realize how ridiculous -- >> -- how much do you want
and craig whitlock. >> i would like to ask you about afghanistan. the obama administration thought they had fought the deal to keep the troops there 2014. that seems like it is falling apart. do you see any way of resolving this before the beginning of next year or will it stride on until afghanistan elects a new president? >> the deal has not fallen
those critical comments he made about obama care last month. mr. clinton criticized president obama for his promise if you like your plan you can keep it. on tuesday, he set the record straight on what was or was not behind those remarks. >> is it because you are setting the way for mrs. clinton to run? and seconds, are the problems with obama care limited to the website? >> the answer to the first question is, no. first of all, i said nothing about this. not one word until the president spoke. >> the former president didn't say whether he thought problems with the law were confined to the website. he also didn't give any insight into a possible white house run by wife hillary in 2016. >> changes to frequent flyer programs could be on the way soon. justices heard arguments tuesday from a rap eye who says northwest airlines revoked his platinum elite status. the airline says it did so because he made too many complaints and booked himself on full flights in hopes of getting bumped. lawyers for the rabbi say it was a move to encourage members ahead of the merger with delta airlines. >
able to keep their plans. now with the obama care website kind of sort of working, the president is making his sales pitch to the american people again. >>> also in national news, we already know the train was going too fast. now we know the engineer says he was in a daze before it derailed. what else will we learn when investigators update us this hour on that deadly train crash in the bronx? >>> and the pop
. let's preserve freedom and choice and health care. fine, keep the obama care health plans in place. give those as an option for individuals. but we should also give individuals the freedom to choose a plan that doesn't have the mandate of coverages because that is what is driving up the cost. >> it doesn't work. >> it's not going to work anyway. but if you want to set this up as an insurance pool which means you're paying insurance and you're a man and you don't want to have paternity coverage, you've got to pay it too. that's the way it works out. and i'm not arguing whether this should have been done or not, that's the only way it works. >> it's not working out. >> but that's -- what you're talking about is -- >> does anybody believe the cost curve has been bent down? i mean -- >> there are arguments. i'm not picking up the flag and waving with this, but if you have peter orszag or somebody else come in, they will say, yes, it will bend. >> it is also because of what was happening with things like health savings accounts and higher deductible plans, which is really where the move
look for that right here. in the meantime, republicans are trying to keep the focus on the website's problems and targeting blue senators in red states reminding mid-term voters that senate dems voted for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation
obama should honor the commitment he made that americans would be able to keep their existing health plans did his best to shrink whatever perceived distance that comment caused between himself and the president. >> is it because you are setting the way for mrs. clinton to run and second, are the problems with obama care limited to the website? >> the answer to the first question is no. first of all, i said nothing about this. not one word until the president himself spoke. i was trying to be supportive of it. i don't think you can find anybody in america who worked harder for reelection or supporting this bill or went out of his way to explain the bill to the american people more than i did. >> more democrats are trying to get on the same page and more republicans will be forced to depend not on stumbles, but a message of their own and they lock like they are struggling on that front if they don't have stumbles to lean on. they are taking a page out of the playbook. tax senate democrats are going on cuts to providers. in one release mark pryor release said pryor's deciding vote for
. and president obama agreeing it's time for a raise in the minimum wage. >> i'm going to keep pushing until we get a higher minimum wage for hard-working americans across the entire country. it will be good for our economy. >> but, as the unemployment rate is heading in the right direction, will this wage hike have jobs taking a hike? hi, everyone, this is "bulls and bears." let's get right to it.
added 30 jobs. >> this month under president obama and these are also at the bls.gov. go right there. 75% of all the jobs that president obama created -- he created 1.8 million jobs, 75% of those, part time. >> you keep saying he created those jobs. i keep saying his job creation started when he issued the stimulus. >> but the stimulus was a total bust on jobs and they even admit that. >> it was a total boss when we inherited 700 a month from the bush administration. >> what has he been able to accomplish when he was in office? >> he has to personal responsibility. >> but the stimulus dollars, the government statistics. >> it keeps us from a depression. >> the real wealth gap is in d.c. d.c. versus the rest of the united states. the wealth gap is so large michael moore could waddle through it. >> the administration wants to take credit for the stock market but not the income inequality that has gotten worse under his administration. >> how is that, bob? >> income inequality has been growing for 20 years. it's not any one president's fault. >> the fact of the matter is, yes, it's gotten w
's right. god help us. the pope is like president obama. this dangerous duo spends their time striving for a better world of equality, faith and freedom. it sounds terrifying, doesn't it? and the hits just keep on coming. that fox column goes on to say, quote, just as president obama has been a disappointment for america, pope francis will prove a disaster for the catholic church. right. so let's just get this. this is the pope who's already reinvigorating a church with more than a billion members. he's called on catholics to more closely follow the teachings of a little book i like to call the bible when it comes to focusing oncalled out the failures of trickle down economics. reportedly snuck outside at night to wash the feet of the homeless. that's the guy. it was put best in a washington post column. limbaugh is right. somebody did get to pope francis. it was jesus. although i keep wondering if what conservatives are really angry about is that the pope's focus on the poor undermines their agenda of tax cuts for the wealthy, demonizing on social issues and cutting food stamps for ki

. how is that possible, they think that can keep going? >> i don't know. i mean, the problem for them is that obama care is their plan. and that's why they don't have anything to say. and they had to focus on the website. so i think the media and republicans were behind the narrative. you know, this shutdown affected the website coverage. and then the website was getting fixed and we were still talking about the website as if it was broken. and i think that the bottom line here is that once you sign up for insurance, you're not thinking about a website. on january 1st, when i go to the doctor, i'm not going to be thinking about the website. and nobody is going to ask me about the website. how long did it take you to sign up? nobody is going to be asking that. when you go to get your prescription and no co-pay for preventive care for women, you're not going to be thinking about the website. >> i think about the history books in 2040, are they going to be reading about health care or a web site? nobody is going to care. i have to divert one question about detroit, professor dyson. obvio
president obama kept repeating things like -- you can keep your dr., this whole scenario, he kept repeating it over and over and i had thought -- i had always thought of him as the president of the united states, who could think alert late, but when he kept saying that it was almost like someone hypnotize, it occurred to me that this just came to my thoughts, the whole group that got into the white house may be using him as the mouthpiece for the whole group. and they would never have gotten into the what -- the white house without someone as articulate as president obama, which he is. host: pat, who is the whole group? caller: a group of progressives who wanted into the white house and they wanted to be in it, regardless of whether they could get elected or not, but president obama seemed like a good candidate to be their mouthpiece. that is kind of what he is acting like. fireds why no one can get because they are in charge and he is not. that occurred to me as a possibility. can we talk about the cabinet secretaries and the power and influence that they have? guest: there is a long-term

or three years ago? >> no, there is a credibility problem. you can keep your coverage plan back fired on the president. and the other is strategy of using success stories and looking to the obama care success stories and hopefully they will be more successful and the stories didn't man up. the republicans will have an equal numbers of people hurt by obama care and lost their coverage and have premiums go up and deductibles go sky high. there will be an equal. this person helped and hurt quality to what we are going to see. >> did they admit they did a lousy job of articulating the great things in this? if you ask a hundred americans what is in the affordable care act? they could say something about preexisting coverage and beyond, that people do know very few specifics. >> they are finding out because of the implementation. the reason that republicans never got a lot of traction with the warnings of obama care, it was not yet a reality in american lives and now it is here. they are worried about losing their own coverage and premiums going up and a deduct dibl so high they pay for all
